The Lauder Legacy: Jewels for a Cause

Launch Slideshow

In December 2012, Sotheby’s New York was honoured to offer a collection of magnificent jewels from the collections of Estée Lauder and Evelyn H. Lauder. Sold to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), the highest-rated breast cancer research organisation in the country, the auction culminated in the sale of an exquisite Fancy Intense Pink diamond ring from the collection of Evelyn H. Lauder, BCRF founder, which achieved $8.6 million. Almost five years later, Sotheby’s has the privilege of continuing the Lauder legacy by collaborating with Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer for our Fine Jewels sale in New York. Ahead of the auction, revisit a stunning selection of Lauder family jewels Sotheby’s has sold over the years and discover two diamond rings from Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer’s collection which will be offered this October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to benefit BCRF. –Mallory Landers
